How is Box (the company) doing?

Box employees, Can you please share some insights? I have an interview opportunity.
I was at Box's conference last week and heard from partners that customers are moving to Microsoft. Microsoft is heavily investing and throwing away storage for cheap. The attendance at Box's conference was lacklustre. I know employees who have moved on. Stock is not doing well. How's the morale in the company?

      What details do you need. Bad stock. Comp is good but if you factor in the fact that 85% of employees aren’t given a refresher it is not that hot over time. Good culture, friendly but atleast 2 tiers below Amazon. Use it for practice so you can climb a tier to G or FB

    I am interested too. I don’t see them as a storage company. Relay, shield and partner integration means you can build business processes on top of box and can work with all big applications. It’s great strategy for companies who uses apps outside of ms and g. And that’s where it’s differentiated from Microsoft. I see great long term potential or acquisition outcome. But if box employees are not bullish then I must be missing something!

    What happened to Box? It used to be a good company. Is Microsoft the reason for Box's downfall?

      Storage is cheap and big guns can do it at a loss & with more features. Plus captive biz customers who already use MS or G suite

      Yes this. Microsoft is basically using us for an AB test. They just implement whatever works best for us 2 quarters later. With their enterprise muscle they can do that

    Moral is mixed, depending on what org you are in. Many people have moved on, many others want to. Keep your options open.

    What add ons is Box selling that Microsoft and Google cannot?

    Morale is decent. Box is focusing on selling large companies enterprise add ons providing functionality other services don't. Companies that just want file sync and share aren't the focus, stock performance is due to people that don't understand that.
